4 stars Another victim of the music scavengers. Happy the Men were fired after their second wonderful Crafty Hands. This people in the music industry were pretending they could make us listen to what they wanted, they could rise superstars or ruin bands that were unwilling to obey their orders. They got what they deserved: piracy. Who do you think you are, bastards! Now you sit back in you stinky retirement and see how those you squeezed and destroyed are reborn from the ashes you burnt them in to become the Giants they always were. Happy the Men was one of those Giants, the real Prog Heroes that created amazing music while the big names had already worn out or succumbed to dirty money. This Better Late is material from 79 that was released years later, and we have to thank for the effort and the faith of these guys. The style is a bit different, more based on smoother organ tunes, but still with an incredible creativity. Musicianship is at its best, of course. Some pieces for the eternity are The Eye Of The Storm and While Chrome Yellow Shines. I drop one star because there are some weaker themes, but even those are pleasant enough. Don't miss it.
